a simple lifestyle blog
As it is Friday, the most glorious day of the week and the end to the work week, I would like to celebrate with all of you by sharing some of my FAVORITE things.
It is William H. Macy’s (Fargo) directorial debut starring Billy Crudup (Almost Famous) and Anton Yelchin (Charlie Bartlet / my dreams). I laughed, I cried, I sang loudly.
Do yourself a favor and WATCH IT.
Reads- Not That Kind of Girl (Lena Dunham)
Lena Dunham– writer, actress, voice of our generation– has compiled this memoir of essays detailing events of her life in all their ordinary and extraordinary splendor.
Some pearls of wisdom:
“When someone shows you how little you mean to them and you keep coming back for more, before you know it you start to mean less to yourself.”
“There’s a certain grace to having your heart broken.”
“The people accusing me of being productive don’t know how hard it is for me to just bend my elbows sometimes.”
WARNING: readers will fall deeply and madly in love with Lena Dunham.
Eats- Dinner Rolls
I stumbled across this recipe while browsing for an interesting way to incorporate bread into our meal when we were having a friend over last weekend.
I mean, I don’t mind just shoving whole slices of bread into my mouth between bites (or, as I like to think of them, things to wash the bread down with), but for a guest, I figured we could shake things up.
This is dinner rolls prepared in a slow cooker and then lightly (or not so lightly) buttered and finished off in the oven. >> YUM.
What are some of your favorite things?
Until next week, cheers!
